Exclusive premiere: TRANSPORT LEAGUE - “Me, The Cursed”
Time for a new TRANSPORT LEAGUE video, taken from their upcoming new studio album. “Me The Cursed” is a “tormented song“, with a structure not-so-usual in the TL camp. However, the progression of the song, the first lines, where a “cursed” Jelencovich speaks his battered mind like ever before, all set a path to one of the heaviest riffs on the Swedes’ career. the video premieres exclusively at Arrow Lords Of Metal, today.
Watch “March, Kiss, Die” below.
“”Me The Cursed” is a reflection of the daily struggles in life”, Tony Julien Jelencovich, Transport League vocalist and guitarist, comments. “All the boundaries that you endure, all the choices that you make, stain your mind & soul in a good or a bad way. You might be torn, you might be tattered, but you are still standing and you are always cursed”.
Watch the previously premiered video for ‘Criminal Energy’ and ‘March, Kiss, Die’ below.
Says the band:
“The pandemic struck us hard just like it did to the whole music business & live scene. At the end of April 2020 we decided to wrap up our songwriting sessions and drag ourselves into the studio.
We entered Grand Recordings and El Bastardo studio in our hometown Gothenburg. The engineering was handled by Dan Johansson (ex Mary Beats Jane & Generous Maria) and Henrik Danhage (El Bastardo Studio & Evergrey), we did the production ourselves but with advisory from both Dan J & Henrik D. Mixing was done by Svein Jensen (Grand Recordings), Mastering by Philip Granquist.
The 11 tracks breathe a lot of live-take energy and with some moody breakdown tracks as well. Guest appearances, by Sal Abruscato (ex Type O Negative, A Pale Horse Named Death) on the track March, Kiss, Die and by Christian Sture (Heal) on Kaiserschnitt, fits like a glove. The album has a Transport League signature all over! Groovy, energetic, catchy & with a lot of rock’n’roll references all over“.
